New Hyde Park Memorial High School’s student newspaper, The Chariot, has earned Gold medal recognition from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, earning 966 points out of a possible 1,000.
Issues published during the 2019-20 school year were submitted for critique in June. A panel of experts evaluated the set, focusing on three categories: Essentials, Verbal and Visual. Valuable feedback is then provided for the current staff. For the 2019-20 school year, The Chariot was awarded All-Columbian Honors for outstanding achievement in the Essentials and Visual categories.
